Little Gems After School Club is our childcare provision, offering a fun and safe environment for children to undertake various stimulating activities, and is located in a dedicated mobile on the school playground.
Bookings for Little Gems After School Club are completed 3 times a year (for Terms 1 and 2, Terms 3 and 4, and Terms 5 and 6) through an application form which is sent out via the school’s communication platform for those currently using the provision. For parents who require a new place in after school club requests should be made via the school office email address email@example.com If there is no availability to meet your requirements your child’s name will be placed on our waiting list and as soon as a space becomes available you will be contacted by the After School Club Supervisor.
All payments must be made for the After School club via parent pay at www.parentpay.com If you require an emergency space for the evening please contact the school office who will enquire with the After School Club Supervisor as to whether a space is available.

What we do in Little Gems Afterschool Club
In Little Gems ASC we have lots of fun and enjoy working as part of a team. We are all part of a Harry Potter house based on one of the decorated rooms. All children are escorted to the After School Club by their classroom staff and undertake a range of craft and play activities each day.

The children can win points for their house teams and the winning team each term receives a small prize. This encourages teamwork and helps develop collaborative working and positive relationships across all ages.
We offer a variety of activities which are fun and enjoyable for all ages as well as taking into consideration the childrens' interests.
Here is an overview of some of the many activities that are on offer:
● Free Craft

We also plan sessions with a specific focus or theme to build the children’s knowledge of the world around them. One example is that the children have learnt about foods from around the world and enjoyed tasting them. If you wish to see what we have planned for the term please speak to a member of Little Gems.
The children like using their imagination and come up with some amazing ideas in the arts and crafts area; if you have any recycling items that you would like to donate please drop these off at Little Gems.
